Our first week at Coombe Mill

If you've been reading my blog or seen our Facebook page recently, you'll know that at the moment we are on holiday at the rather fabulous Coombe Mill.  Despite a week of largely wet weather, we have been making the most of the outdoors, and everything the farm has to offer us!  This is the first holiday The Daddy and I have had in four years so it is a hugely welcome break, and it is brilliant to be able to spend lots of time together as a family, whatever the weather.

Without doubt the best bit of the holiday so far has been the morning feed run.  Each morning at 9am sharp, Farmer Nick or Farmer Ted (and sometimes Farmer Fiona!) arrive at the car park with the tractor and it's trailer to take the children round to visit the animals.  On the first day, Little Miss was a bit nervous so I carried her most of the way round, but our Little Man was straight in there:

By the second day, Little Miss was feeling much braver and insisted on walking everywhere (and whenever she wobbles over she seems to find a pile of goose poo to land in...)

The pigs are a particular favourite:

And today, for the first time, Little Miss allowed me to put her down in the goats' field:

She also tried to feed the goat, but offered the leafy branch to it's bottom.

We went up to the top field today, to look for the deer and were rewarded with this:

And this (excuse the blur, my camera's auto setting and my limited photography skills weren't up to it!):

We have discovered that our 19 month olds can walk a lot further than we ever thought possible.  Little Miss has a penchant for sticks:

And Little Man for all things tractor:

And that we like finding flowers to give to Mummy:

We really are having the most wonderful time.  Now if we could just have a bit of sunshine for next week...?

I'm linking this up with Country Kids at Coombe Mill and Multiple Mummy's Family Frolics.

Well the sunshine has arrived today, fingers crossed it will last! So pleased you are having a lovely time. We have your cot sheets on the way back too from our over enthusiastic cleaning! Thanks for linking up such a lovely review of your stay with us and hope next week is at least as good for you all. x
